digiKam: Web Services tools authentication with OAuth2
digiKam is a desktop application for photos management. digiKam provides a wide range of plugins for exporting photos to web services (e.g dropbox, flickr, facebook, etc.) alowing users to easily upload their photos to cloud storage services or share photos on social networks.
Current export tool authentication process makes it far from easy-to-use for users. In addition, authentication protocols varies much for each web service, generating many difficulties for implementation and code maintaining. Hence, this project is aimed to resolve those problems by porting authentication flow with O2 library, in order to make digiKam export tool more user-friendly and more flexible for development and maintenance.
